Hand blenders – also know as stick blenders or wand blenders – are a very useful addition to your kitchen. They make the creation of soups, smoothies and sauces simple, quick and easy. This is done by the use of two, three or four blades spinning at high speed to blend your ingredients into the consistency you require. The important things to consider when buying a hand blender are ease of cleaning, the power of the motor, and durability. Many stick blenders come with additional accessories to make your life in the kitchen easier and this may affect which hand blender you purchase, which is where the information on this page will come in handy.
We try to update this page as often as we can with a selection of the best selling and highly rated Hand Blenders, but you can also click here to see a list of the best selling hand blenders on the Amazon UK website.

Popular Hand Blenders in Detail
Russell Hobbs Food Collection White Hand Blender 22241
Not only is the Russell Hobbs Hand Blender (Model 22241) the best selling hand blender on Amazon UK, it has an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5, and it’s very affordable too. With an RRP of £19.99 (which is often discounted), this blender is simplicity in itself. It has a 200 Watt motor with two speeds, the blades are stainless steel and the leg is detachable for easy cleaning. Unfortunately, not everyone is happy with this wand blender. Users say that food can get stuck in the machine in places it is impossible to clean so hygiene issues can develop with this hand blender. Another problem found is that the plastic around the blades are prone to breaking or melting in hot liquids which makes the blender unusable. On a positive note, this blender is priced low and is so simple to use that if you buy it and then find that you don’t use it as much as you thought, you’ve not wasted much money!
At the time of writing this article (Sept 2020) the Russell Hobbs Food Collection Hand Blender is currently on sale at just £11.96, saving you over £8 on the RRP!

Braun MultiQuick 1 MQ100 Hand Blender
From reliable German manufacturer Braun, we have the MultiQuick 1 MQ100 Hand Blender which has an RRP of £22.99.

The wand is detachable for easy cleaning and although this hand blender has only one speed, the motor is 450 watt rated so it’s a powerful product that does it’s job very well. The biggest problem (and the one most often complained about) is the fact that, depending on which seller you buy from, you may end up with a European plug fitting, which is somewhat annoying as you may choose to return the item. We suggest you contact a seller first before you buy this Bosch hand blender from Amazon UK.
